Me and my girlfriend are planning our first roadtrip at the moment. We’re flying out from Sweden to Denver in the middle of May. The plan is to be out on the roads for about a month, give or take a few days, with the following (very sketchy) route:
We’ll start in Denver, and go north through Wyoming (and probably visit Yellowstone) to Montana. We’d really like to see Seattle and Portland, so the plan is to go there, and then travel south along the coast to San Francisco. From S.F. we’d go east to Las Vegas and then continue to Albuquerque, where we’ll turn north and go back to Denver.
Will there be enough time to visit all these places in about 30-35 days? The route will be, according to my calculations, about 3700 miles (or 6000 kilometres). For many hours do we need to drive every day to make this? We’re both fairly inexperienced drivers on this scale, although we both have had driving licenses for many years. We’d probably want to stay a few days in Portland, S.F. and Las Vegas, but except for that we’ll try to drive every day. We have around 4000 dollars each to spend, will this be enough? We’re both used to travel cheap, and will try to do the same on this trip.
All help is very much appreciated. A million thanks in advance!
